CHARGES are expected to be laid today against a man who is alleged to have stabbed a 33-year-old woman to death in Tailevu two weeks ago.

When this edition went to press last night, the man was still being interrogated at the Nausori Police Station.

Police spokesman Inspector Atunaisa Sokomuri said Sailasa Mociu was escorted by police from Nadi to Nausori yesterday morning.

He said the 43-year-old suspect, who had been on the run for 14 days, was arrested when he presented himself to a law firm in Lautoka on Wednesday.

"They are still questioning him at the moment and no charges have been laid yet," Insp Sokomuri said.

Kasaya Veisei died after she was allegedly stabbed at Naisaumua Village on January 9.

Meanwhile, the family of the deceased have taken the woman's four children into their care.

The deceased's uncle Jone Luvenitoga has taken the youngest daughter into his care while her three elder siblings are with an aunt.

Mr Luvenitoga said they were grateful to police officers in Korovou for providing books and stationery to prepare the children for the new school year.

He said on Tuesday, the youngest child looked around for her mother to take her to school as she did daily while attending kindergarten.

He said the new addition to their family was a blessing.
